Finding Reserves

Book/Media Items

Go to the Course Reserves section of the USF Libraries Catalog. Search by instructor name, course number, author, or title. If the item has not already been checked out, it will be available to you at the Library Services Desk.

Most course reserves are available for 3 hour, in Library use only. There are a few exceptions that allow for 1 day, 3 day or 7 day loans. These will be listed in the course reserves catalog. Reserves have a $5 per hour late fee, $25 max.

E-reserves can be accessed through the Library Course Reserves link in your Canvas course.
